Jun 21st, 2017 | By | Category: News

U.S. Sen. Patty Murray of Washington has reintroduced legislation to expand a program that helps those who care for wounded, ill or injured military veterans.

The Military and Veteran Caregiver Services Improvement Act would open the program to veterans of all eras, making resources available to more of the family members and other loved ones who have taken on a caregiver role for veterans, Murray said.

“This bill is an important step in ensuring caregivers and veterans of all eras can access this critical program, allowing veterans stay with their loves ones and out of hospitals and nursing homes,” said Murray, senior member of the Senate’s Veterans Affairs Committee.
